    Stories About the Stories We Increasingly Live By

    in Psychology

    Our stories are increasingly narrow and do not communicate across larger social groups. Our stories contain  fewer facts but more myths, fantasies, and outright lies. Our stories are growing shorter with fewer meaningful narratives. Our stories have fewer heroes unless they are fictional superheroes but contain more villains. Our stories are less about skills and resilience and more about victimization and trauma. Our stories are incresingly based on judgment rather than description.

    Date : 9 12/18 "Solar Now and The Future with its Economic Impact on Blackm America  Eposid 86
    Host; Ronald Bethea
    11:00 am - 11:30 Host:  Topic of Discussion: How much does it cost to put up a solar farm on a 30 acre piece of land?
    At 18% efficiency, 1000 Wp(solar)/m2 translates to 180 Wp(electrical)/m2. 30 acres is 121,406 m2. That’s 21.85 MWp(electrical). At $4.50 per peak watt that’s $98.33 million capital cost. Each watt peak electrical averages over the year 188 milliwatts given the fact its not sunny all the time. So, that reduces you average power output to 4.1 MW. That’s 36 million kWh per year. At $0.11 per kWh that’s worth $3.96 million per year. This just about covers your maintenance costs only. Using advanced concentrating solar panels that are 55% efficient, and convert rain water and sunlight into hydrogen gas, and using the hydrogen gas to run gas fired power plant at 36% efficiency121,406 m2 * 550 W/m2 (peak) * 0.188 utilisation * 0.36 (thermal) = 4.52 MW avg. Which is about the same, but the fuel gives you the flexibility to load match, and operate at night. At $0.11 per kWh this produces a revenue of $4.355 million per year. A 30 year contract is worth $130.6 million. The present value of the revenue stream over the same term, when discounted at 8% is $52.95 million. These are so cheap, MOKENERGY for example, sells the power not the equipment. You provide the land, and the company does the rest, is their motto. An off-take agreement at $0.11 from a credit-worthy buyer and the payment of a 10% of the contract discounted value ($5.95 million) as retainer for a study, and you’re good to go. Tax credits, carbon credits, and other benefits, are worked out as well and reduce power costs. Power costs are fixed over the 30 year term.

    Serotonin and Competitiveness

    in Social Sciences

    Serotonin creates the feeling of social importance, so how does it affect competitiveness at work?
    This podcast is a live call-in with Loretta Breuning, PhD, author of Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels. Questions? InnerMammalInstitute.org/podcast.
    Happiness is caused by four special brain chemicals: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. When you know how they work in animals, you can find your power over them in daily life.
    The happy chemicals are not designed to flow all the time for no reason. They evolved to reward behaviors that promote survival in the state of nature. They are only released in short spurts, so you always have to do more to get more. This makes life frustrating!
    Our chemicals are controlled by neural pathways built from life experience. Neurons connect when your happy chemicals flow, which wires you to repeat behaviors that felt good before. Fortunately, you can re-wire yourself, but it’s not easy. That’s why we keep discussing and asking questions.
    The Inner Mammal Institute has resources that help you make peace with your inner mammal: books, videos, blogs, graphics, and podcasts. You’ll find out what turns on your happy chemicals in the state of nature, and how you can turn them on today. InnerMammalInstitute.org
    It’s not easy being mammal! But you can build your power over your mammalian brain chemicals. Listen! Read! Join the conversation! Music from Sonatina Soleil by W.M. Sharp. Hear more of it at InnerMammalInstitute.org/musicbywmsharp.

About Science

Millions tuned in to see the first images beamed back to Earth the night that NASA's Curiosity landed on Mars. We live-streamed with baited breath as Felix Baumgartner set world records with his freefall from the edge of space, and marveled at the news of a successful 36-hour face transplant. From astronomy to medicine and every discipline in between, science gets us talking in record numbers. Whether you know more about Big Bang Theory the TV show than you do the cosmological model, you'll find thousands of answers on BlogTalkRadio from scientists, historians, authors, TV stars and more about popular topics like biopharmaceuticals, hydroponics, geology, solar energy, climate change, forensics, creationism vs. evolution, quantum physics, stem cell research, even UFO and Bigfoot sightings. You'll also find a full range of mental-health discussions on seasonal affective disorder, behavioral therapy, depression, codependency, schizophrenia, parapsychology and everything else that may confound, and astound, us.
